Rewild...What does this word mean for you?
It's about letting nature take care of itself, enabling natural processes to shape land and sea, repair damaged ecosystems and restore degraded landscapes.
Through rewilding, wildlife's natural rhythms create wilder, more biodiverse habitats. However, Rewilding is also about the way we think. It is about understanding that we are just one species among many, bound together in an intricate web of life that connects us with the atmosphere, the weather, the tides, the soil, freshwater, the oceans and every other living creature on the planet. Both processes are interconnected.
As George Monbiot, one of the world’s most celebrated radical thinkers, offers a riveting tale of possibility and travel in the wild, told us in “Feral: Rewilding the Land, Sea and Human Life”, “if we have spaces on our doorsteps in which nature is allowed to do its own thing, in which it can be to some extent self-willed, driven by its dynamic processes, that, I feel, is a much more exciting and thrilling ecosystem to explore and discover, and it enables us to enrich our lives, to fill them with wonder and enchantment.” Is it possible to rewild without giving up social approval, luxury, fashionable items, cultural trends or modern design? We're here to tell you that YES, it's possible, but first, you should discover HOW and, more importantly, WHY to do it. How, when and why we spend our money is deeply tied to our beliefs, values and attitudes. But they need to become our behaviours to be visible to others.
Thanks to Prince Albert II of Monaco, we learned about changing our attitude and behaviour. Thank you for this opportunity to be a part of your community and for making our impact even more significant.
